Design Discover


Everything starts with a good chat. We’ll get to know you and your organisation, and talk through your project objectives, timelines and budgets to formulate a plan everybody’s happy with. Then we’ll deep-dive into your marketplace, target audience and key competitors to start defining a strategically-sound brand/project proposition to inform our creative work.

Design Explore


This is where the fun really starts! We’ll explore various creative directions to bring your proposition to life. We’ll look at design, imagery and key messaging across all of your main brand touchpoints, considering the biggest opportunities for your brand to really cut-through. Then, based on your feedback, we’ll fine-tune to create a final concept for sign-off.

TPI Deliver Great Design


Now we’ve got an agreed creative direction, it’s time to successfully launch it into the world! We can help you with a range of deliverables including print collateral, packaging, websites and digital content, photography, video and retail design, ensuring you have everything you need to launch your project and start creating connections with your audience.
